Sunday from 8:00 – 13:00. The Santa Maria market takes place every Sunday and it attracts both locals and tourists for traditional goods, food, clothes, live animals and local crafts.
The market is held in the plaza close to the iconic ‘blue tile roof’ church, which is pretty much in the center of town. Specially doing the summer it is very busy and the stalls open up already at 08:00 in the morning. Around the market you will find several restaurants and cafés and the whole market has a nice atmosphere. If you are looking for ecological food, there is a whole section offering fruits, vegetables and other natural products.
For the children there is a playground in the center of the market.
Santa María can be reached easily from several roads, but trying to find parking in the streets around the market can be almost impossible. So doing Sunday the outskirt of Santa Maria is turned into a car parking where officials help making sure everything goes smooth. From the car parking there is about 500m to the market.
